Ten States asking Supreme Court Void the 3 day Pennsylvania Extension
Attorneys General join legal action against Pennsylvania mail-in ballots Republican Attorneys General from 10 states filed an amicus curiae brief in support of two lawsuits challenging Pennsylvania's three-day mail-in ballot extension.
HARRISBURG, Pa. - Republican Attorneys General from 10 states joined together to file an amicus curiae brief in support of two lawsuits asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review Pennsylvania's three-day extension to receive mail-in ballots.
The brief was filed Nov. 9 in support of Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Boockvar and Scarnati v. Boockvar by the Attorney General of Missouri and joined by the Attorneys General of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, South Dakota and Texas.
The Attorneys General said at a press conference announcing the amicus brief that the Pennsylvania legislature-and not the Pennsylvania Supreme Court-is the only body with the power to change election ballot rules.
"The actions of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court are one of the most breathtaking abuses of judicial authority that I've seen in my four-plus years as Attorney General," said Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter (R).
